About the designer:
Hans Jørgensen Wegner (April 2, 1914 - January 26, 2007) was a Danish furniture designer.

His work, along with a concerted effort from several of his manufacturers, contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design.

His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a Modernist with emphasis on functionality.

Wegner has been referred to as the "King of Chairs" for his proliferated work designing seating and is one of the most iconic designers of the 20th century. In his lifetime he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production and many of which have become recognizable design icons.

“If only you could design just one good chair in your life...but you simply cannot.”
